smARTist Revival Podcast #2

Balance Your Life, Sell Your Art

Another 7-Day, Full Immersion,
Professional-Development Conference

Beginning, Mid-career, & Established

You are producing work you love, you’re putting in the time and effort that comes straight from your soul, but you feel something is missing …

smARTist Revival Podcast #2 gives you the complete, 7-day, one-and-only, professional, art-career development conference — AKA The smARTist Telesummit, full-immersion event focused on life/work balance.

As a self-supporting artist for 18 years…

Thank you, Ariane, for putting on an amazing smARTist Telesummit. What you are doing is so valuable.

I’ve been a self-supporting artist for the past 18 years, and I was afraid I might not learn too much new. But there were so many choice nuggets and new ideas to absorb that I’m thrilled.

The speakers were excellent—inspiring and enjoyable to listen to, again and again. And every time I listen, I get another tip I hadn’t focused on before.

For example, I recently won a National Portfolio competition and was signed to a prominent Toronto gallery. I used Joan Stewart’s talk on Publicity to help me send out a press release to my contact list and the media, which resulted in a lot of local press.

My new gallery was very impressed and said they’ve never worked with an artist who is so knowledgeable and pro-active about promotion

Please keep me on your mailing list and count me in for the next one!

The Vision Questionnaire has had an amazing effect on me

Digging deep to get my answers for the smARTist Vision Questionnaire has had an amazing effect on me…there is something about being honest with myself that gives me a sense of finding my “true North.

And a feeling that I’ve found a treasure box inside that I didn’t know I had.

It’s been absolutely wonderful for me.

I feel that you started at the “real” beginning for all of us, and that this has been in integrity for your stated purpose. Thank you!

  • The 2-Minute Challenge — Each panel member answers a different artist’s question.
  • The Hot-Seat — One artist’s dilemma is highlighted, and the entire panel responds.

…your Panel today was worth the price of admission.

I really enjoyed the panel today. It was wonderful to be encouraged to make art rather than allow the negative spin on the economy to rule my thinking.

I am believing that all is possible, bolstered by the rich ideas and suggestions shared today

If this was it, your Panel today was worth the price of admission.

Thanks, Ariane, for making possible a source of much needed good news and encouragement!

~ Vicki S

Here’s a sample of questions that artist asked the panel
(There are soooo many more, I couldn’t fit them all in!)

  • At this point in my career, I need to work at a ‘day’ job to make money. This leaves me with limited time and energy for both creating and marketing. Where can I put my artistic energy to get the biggest bang for my buck?
  • Do you have one guiding rule that you follow when it comes to setting up payment for commissions? How do you get your customers to follow through with payment?
  • I am involved in too many art forms (I’m what Barbara Sher calls a ‘scanner’ and Margaret Lobenstine calls a ‘Renaissance Soul’). Although I can’t imagine myself settling with just one art form, I feel that I need to narrow my focus considerably. How do I assess which to choose?
  • Should I consider licensing my work even if it is not being used for commercial purposes, just as a way to protect myself if anyone were to stumble upon an image of it?


Goodness knows, I have.

The problem is buying a program with no road map for how to apply what I’m learning.

That’s all on me. Ugh.

So, I decided to make sure you completely use what you just bought.

It’s my super simple, Stay-on-Track Worksheets!

Bonus Bundle No. 3

Will help you…

1. BEFORE you listen: Identify where your art career is going, what’s missing, and what you need.

2. DURING listening: Insert the specific information related to where your art career is going, what’s missing, and what you need.

3. AFTER you listen: Create a Step-by-Step Action Plan to power up a specific project for where your art career is going, what’s missing, and what you need.

These worksheets target the information on each episode to what your career needs right now.

The smARTist Telesummit was a find for me!

With every passing day, what smARTist facilitated for me has been uplifting and significant.

Including an incredible wealth of knowledge that continues to profoundly impact my awareness of all the possibilities for a working artist, as well as my life as a human being!

The smARTist Telesummit was a find for me! If only you knew HOW MUCH this has affected my life for the better.

I send you this gratitude because what you have done is revolutionary, Ariane, and as I continue to uncover my own gifts, I am going to come back again to say Thank you!!!!!

~ Kerrie B. Wry

At last, I can grasp the true spirit of my work.

I would like to express my profound gratitude to you, Ariane, for organizing the smARTist Telesummit, two times in a row!

Thanks to pure luck, I found your website two and a half years ago. Since then, your wonderful book and the Telesummits have helped to make my career a lot easier to advance.

I wish I’d met you 10 years ago! The young artists coming to smARTistâ are really lucky to be there now, not 10 years down the road.

The change is so big that I bet most people would feel scared.

I will not be surprised if everything takes a completely new and unexpected route: my medium, profile, direction, priorities…all of my career.

Balance Your Life and Sell Your Art

You have questions? I thought so….

Who, specifically, is this smARTist Revival Podcast #1 for?

– Any visual artist at any career level: beginner, mid-career, established.

Why is listening to this podcast material important?

– It isn’t for everyone. But in today’s creator economy, you’re seriously behind if you don’t have an art-career foundation in place.

And, even before you start listening, you get the Vision Questionnaire with 28 art-career questions, each one helping you lay out exactly what you want from your art career right now.

Why should I listen to you? Who are you?

/best,I’m Ariane Goodwin, Ph.D., an artist ally for over 20 years. During my doctoral program in Creativity and Human Development, I became obsessed with this: Why do artist find it so hard to write an artist statement?

Which led me to write — WRITING THE ARTIST STATEMENT: REVEALING THE TRUE SPIRIT OF YOUR WORK — the only book, then and now, on artist statements.

That led me into private coaching, which led me to this: Why do artists fail to consider what they do as a career? A practice, yes. A business, maybe. But a career fell to the renown or dead ones (so-and-so’s career retrospective).

That led to the smARTist Telesummit, a professional development conference where I challenged artists to put on their career cloak-of-many-colors. Back then, I was a lone voice in the art-career wilderness.

Now, the very thing I begged artists to consider—an art-career—is a thriving, online reality. But, you still need the ever-green building blocks in this conference/podcast to live your best art-career vision.

What will I learn in this Podcast?

– You’ll learn the same ever-green, art-career material that thousands of artists from around the world had access to: from selling your art, to publicity tips & tricks, to getting buyers without a gallery (and before Instagram), or nailing a museum exhibition, and how to talk to gallery owners, or decide if licensing is for you, as well as the basic mistakes of most artist statements, and more.

It’s the art-career resource that artists returned to year after year.

Note: 95% of all information is evergreen. 5% of these art-career presentations may no longer apply due to technological advancements.

OK. Got it. This must be expensive?

– No. It’s $97.

A week-long conference of art career material usually costs $1200 or at least $479, or more… What’s the deal?

This 7-day conference ran every year for six years–before I burned out. Now that I’m back on a new site (, I’m reviving this conference as podcasts so even more artists, like you, can benefit.

Yes, some technology has changed. Yes, there are newer social media opportunities. But, making and selling art, like building a sailboat, is 95% evergreen.

This material is foundational no matter what stage your art career finds itself.

What’s missing in this conference material that other conference offer?

– Funny you should ask. Because… there are no other art-career, professional development conferences online or off.

The magnitude of pulling together over a dozen experts & successful artists for 7 days of gritty, hands-on, action-oriented art career presentations for six years was craaaazy hard. And craaazy worth it.

OK, but still… Is it worth $97?

– The original conference cost $495 to attend. A single coaching session from some of the presenters would cost you from $350 up to $1000.

You may listen to the presentations as many times as you need. And the bonus workbooks can be used over and over as the actions you take move your career forward.

How long will it take to see results?

– That depends on which action steps you take consistently. If you follow the individual workshops, and begin implementing the material right away, expect some good traction in 60 to 90 days. You can likely advance your art career in 3 to 12 months. If you do nothing, you won’t see results.

Does the smARTist Revival Podcast come with email or call support?

– No, the podcast is self-guided and self-paced. Remember, you have the Vision Questionnaire, which gives you a customized structure for listening for what you need, right now.

Plus, the Before, During, and After “Stay-on-Track Worksheets,” are a guided support system where you match the specific ideas you hear to the action steps you need to take for what you identified as your career’s most pressing issues right now.

Do I get lifetime access?

– Absolutely. You can access smARTist Revival Podcast #1 for as long as you’d like, with no extra payment.

OK. What do I do next to turbo-charge my art career with this material?

– Click the “Listen now $97” button below and start listening today.
